“Because I’m worth it…”
“So what makes you think you’re worth it?“ is a question you may ask. You are worth it! And I have a number of different reasons to prove my point...
I’m worth it because, from a young age, our parents instilled very important values in my two older sisters and me. These are the values of love, compassion, kindness, honesty, loyalty, respect, and trust, and I try to live by these values in everything that I do, in every day of my life.
I am a positive young lady, who is very passionate about her work and about her life. I’m also ambitious and enthusiastic. I strive to be better at being better in all that I do, at work and at home. I wasn’t always positive though, and have been through very tough times in both my working career, as well as in past relationships, and it used to be a major challenge for me to step out of the negative frame of mind. For example, if something went wrong at work, I would be sad, depressed and disheartened for weeks, wondering if I’d ever come out of that rut.
In past relationships, when things did not work out, I used to blame myself constantly. I used to beat myself up, and I used to think that there was something terribly wrong with me. However, this was not the case at all. It was just because I had extremely low self-esteem that I would feel like that. I used to always feel like I needed someone to pick me up every time I’d fall, and I didn’t know my own strength until I was faced with major challenges, and I was able to overcome those challenges on my own. I must admit that I did need some encouragement and support from my family and friends, but in the end, I managed to overcome the challenges I faced, and I’m stronger because of it.
I used to often compare myself to other people, and I used to think “jeesh I’m such a failure compared to them” and I used to run myself down. Only recently have I learnt to stop doing that. Only recently have I learnt to love myself for who I am. Loving yourself has such an important role to play in having a good, healthy and positive self-esteem. One should never compare themselves to anyone - ever! We all have our own paths, and own lives we need to live in. We all need to be grateful for what and who we have in our lives. Some people have more, some people have less, but being grateful is just as important. The other thing is that sometimes to us, some people look like they have the “perfect “life, but we really have no idea what’s going on there. In any case “perfect“? What is “perfect“? Is there such a thing as “perfect”? What "perfect “ may look like in our eyes, may be seen as something else in another person’s eyes.
I’m worth it because I have so much to give. I try to live by the very same values our parents instilled in us.
I’m worth it because I am strong, independent and I know exactly what I want out of my life, and I love the path that I’m on - my own path.
I’m worth it, simply because, I am “Me “!
